Patients who undergo lumpectomy and radiation therapy have a higher rate of capsular contracture of their mammary prosthesis. The capsular contracture causes the normal lining around a breast implant to become thicker. This then causes the implant/soft tissue construct to become indurated and firm. Removing the mammary prosthesis can present the recurrence of the capsular contracture. Patient satisfaction is quite high in those patients who undergo implant removal from radiation induced capsular contracture.
